TMCC Policy and Statement Regarding Section 504

The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is committed to providing places of work and learning free of discrimination. Likewise, TMCC's policy regarding discrimination and harassments represents our commitment to providing equal educational opportunity to all students.

In compliance with federal law, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, it is TMCC's policy that no otherwise qualified individual with a physical or mental impairment shall, solely on the basis of his/her disability be excluded from participating in, denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity operated by TMCC.

TMCC is dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations for any qualified individual with a disability to insure their equal participation in educational opportunities provided by TMCC. Examples of disabilities that are protected by Section 504 include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cognitive
  • Hearing
  • Learning
  • Heath
  • Physical
  • Psychological
  • Vision
  • Temporary Disability

Students who have a disability and are in need of an accommodation are encouraged to contact TMCC's Disability Resource Center (DRC) so that a reasonable accommodation may be prescribed.

If you believe that you have been the discriminated against based upon your disability, or an institutionally prescribed accommodation for your disability has not been honored, you are encouraged to contact the 504 Coordinator, and may file a complaint.

Allegations of discrimination are taken seriously and will be dealt with promptly, thoroughly, impartially, and equitably in accordance with the TMCC Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Complaint Policy. Where discrimination is found to have occurred, TMCC will act to stop the discrimination, to prevent its reoccurrence, and to remedy its effects.

Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed when filing a complaint of discrimination; however, an individual's privacy will be protected to the extent reasonably possible.

The Nevada Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is charged with the enforcement of Section 504 for educational institutions within the State of Nevada. They may be contact at the information listed below:
